The orphans enjoyed their morning milk and some dairy cubes before leaving for the bush, browsing their way to the noon mudbath venue. Shimba was first into the pool, followed by Siria who engaged Kenia in a water game, with Wasessa interacting with little Tassia and Lesanju. Shimba lay on Mzima in the water, which forced Mzima to quit, followed by his friend Siria. Lempaute took Taveta to a fallen tree trunk, so that both could scratch themselves against it, before joining the others browsing, reaching the stockade later in the evening.
